    Huge shout out to Loop – the space and the staff

    I, Nithya Nagarajan, am writing on behalf of a collective of independent artists – Gavin Rogers, Brodie Rowlands, Joseph Chapman and Shamita Sivabalan to thank Loop for all their help in hosting a mixed-bill performance-work at their venue titled ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’ on the 26th of April this year.
    They were timely in their responses to queries, and helped a great deal with publicity at the venue, on their website and social networking platforms. Loop is not what you expect a typical performance venue to look like, but then again it is not for the people who seek the typical.

    Having a vibe that is relaxed, Loop offers you a platform to showcase experimental works, and unfinished works. If you are tired of performing on a proscenium theatre stage, and believe the audiences should have an intimate experience – Loop is exactly the kind of space you are looking for. Nestled away in an alley in the heart of Melbourne, the bar is uber cool. They always have a range of events on, and it is worth looking into their website to go on a night when something of your taste is showing. Plus, dimly lit interiors and laid back energy make it the ideal bar to kick back a few.

    Great space for a film event

    I worked with the staff at Loop Bar to coordinate a screening and bar tab for a volunteer party after a film festival. The staff were responsive to emails and phone calls, and very accommodating and helpful at the event. The bar service was very quick. The bar manager for the night was especially great, helping run the screening and always keeping me informed of where we were on the tab. Thanks for a great night and great service Loop! Clare Connors
